Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) Clinic
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may also be called “androgen replacement therapy (ART),” depending on the medical professional or institution that you refer to. TRT is a type of hormone replacement therapy that involves switching specific androgens (testosterone in this case) and is used to combat male hypogonadism.
Types of Testosterone Replacement Therapy
There are a number of different TRT treatment options available depending on the medical institution and your unique situation. Every treatment option available in Miami should be tailored to your situation, so make sure to choose medical professionals that take into account your medical history and current lifestyle.
- Skin Patches. Typically applied once a day, this type of TRT is applied directly to the skin in the form of a patch.
- Gels. Also applied once a day, TRT gels is absorbed directly into the skin. The location in which the gel is applied will vary on the brand (such as underarms, nose, etc.).
- Mouth Patches. Taken twice a day, a mouth patch can be applied to the upper gums to provide a continuous stream of testosterone to the body.
- Injections/Implants. As a long term solution for TRT, injections or implants are introduced directly into the body and provide a slow and steady release of testosterone without having to worry about daily applications. While oral pill options are available, some doctors discourage the use of this TRT option. Testosterone replacement therapy taken in the pill format can cause the liver to work much harder than necessary and cause negative effects for it, while other TRT options above bypass the liver while giving you the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy.
